This is fun.  Who can think of a new question to ask?

It has to be a question that almost sounds serious.

How about,

"These teeth must have come from the human sacrifice when one of the players lost. Are the teeth from a male or female?"


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Ask her if the teeth still have the numbers on them if they're used, or whether they've been worn off.  And what about the original pouch they're supposed to come in?

I recal an old thread dedicated to "weird things found in box sets."

A collection of teeth has to be among the top weird finds. I can't seem to find the old thread.

might want to be more honest/thorough with the use of rare





I very rarely waste energy on silly descriptions, but once in a while, on a nice Sunday afternoon, someone needs a gentle reminder, lol.

Quick -- no one stop me from getting my greasy hands on this "rare" version!!! I've been looking hard for one with the demons and devils for YEARS!



DESCRIPTION: Hardcover edition from TSR Hobbies, 4th edition, 1979, 109 pages.
This edition includes the Demons and Devils that were later pulled.





** expired eBay auction **




Oops, I guess someone with greasy hands already had it in their possession! :)

Sometimes melon farmers are deliberately ignorant in order to dupe the less experienced, newbie or wannabe collectors. We all make mistakes in the early days of our collecting careers, hopefully for most of us just overpaying a little. But that sort of inexperienced cash in the market is easy prey for the unscrupulous, or even the willingly ignorant melon farmers out there. This is a prime example of this type of fraud, whether deliberately misleading to steal, or deliberately misleading because he can't be arsed and just wants his ad' to sound good. Either way it's fraud.

My guess is it's a reference to the switch to 2e and the use of baatezu and tanar'ri as their default names.

I'm guessing it's pure arrogance, wilfull ignorance, and an elabourate enhancement in an attempt to dupe money from people. I mean, he had to throw 4E in there as a reference and use the word RARE. There's nothing honest about what the seller is attempting to do. The guy's a cnut.

Maybe we should start a fishing for newbies thread. See how much over the odds a newbie is willing to pay for something worth FA.

Dammit!  Why didn't someone buy it, we needed that one for research!  All my DMGs have lizard logos.
